Pure Bliss | astronomyy – ‘Nothin On My Mind’ (VIDEO)

After a long day at work, there’s nothing I love more than zoning out to some chillout vibes. And on this crazy Monday, I’m certainly intoxicated by the chilled vibes of astronomyy’s video, “Nothin On My Mind.”

Check out the hipster-ish video, which was shot in Southern France (and directed by astronomyy)

Indie Dance | Les Sins – ‘Bother’

If you’re a hipster (or have hipster ways,) then you most likely are a fan of Chaz Bundick, better known as Toro Y Moi. 

He’s made incredible buzz by teaming up with Chromeo for their hit “Come Alive,” but now he’s making some buzz of his own with the announcement of a debut dance music album, Michael.

Shifting away from this chillout moniker, Chaz is releasing his new venture underneath another alias, Les Sins. 

And right on the heels of this announcement, we’ve been blessed with a new single from the forthcoming coming album. Simply titled “Bother,” this new single gives us a glimpse of the indie dance music vibe we can expect on this new project.

Check out these fresh sounds. Are you feeling it?

Jax Jones

Fresh Visuals | Jax Jones – ‘Go Deep’ (Video)

Blasé Boys Club artist, Jax Jones, has unveiled a new video for “Go Deep.”

Sticking to the tradition of wayward, eclectic, and offbeat visuals that you’d expect from anyone associated with Duke Dumont, this video is an awesome free-spirited journey of one man having a good time.

Check it out:

The Magician Sunlight

Fresh Visuals – The Magician x Years & Years – ‘Sunlight’ (Video)

The Magician has debuted some sunshine fresh visuals for his summery anthem, “Sunlight” featuring Years & Years. 

Featuring hot girls, an overly (awesome) confident “fat” guy, and some random folks prancing on the beach, this a quirky video that will put a smile on your face. :)

Right on the heels of releasing his music video for “Sunlight” featuring Years & Years, the illusive The Magician also has a new magic tape.

Well, it’s not really new since it came out last month…but it’s still awesome!

Slow-Hands

Pure Bliss | Slow Hands x Tanner Ross – ‘All The Same (Slow Hands Folk Wash)’

The sounds of an acoustic guitar have such an organic essence that resonate within your soul. No lyrics necessary, the folksy strumming of the strings weaves a story.

And Slow Hands’ Folk Wash edit of his song “All The Same” is truly a story that is brought together by incredible acoustics. However, vocals are present, but they are just an added bonus that enhance the story that the guitar has chosen to share.

All The Same (Folk Wash)

Check out what Slow Hands wrote on his soundcloud: 

We grow everyday as musicians, artists, and creators, if not, you’re doing something wrong. Much of the music I have made loses its charm to me by the time it finally comes off the presses, but something about this song has always resonated in my heart.

Perhaps it always brings me back to the debauchery of the night it was made. Drinking countless stolen bottles of wine under a full moon with Tanner in Majorca. Aimlessly throwing bocci balls as though competing at shot-put in the Olympics, all the while listening back to our rough arrangement on repeat. Maybe it’s because it’s the first song I really sang on, and the words we came up with meant quite a lot to us, and still do… even if the lyrics are indecipherable to those that didn’t write them. Sorry, I promise my voice and recording technics have gotten much better the last couple years.

But, it’s been two years since that night. And, as much as I will miss the amazing audience response to those 808 intro toms below Tanner panting, after two years of playing it in the live set, I decided it needed a bit of a revamp. A revamp heading in the direction of my current live set, and eventual album.

So, last week I picked up my parlor acoustic, called my friend Andrew Lynch (amazing bass player on my album), and Dave Robertson (Cameo Culture, and my amazing producer over the last year), and we sat down to jam on the rough sketches I’d been toying with. This is what happened, hope y’all dig…. – Slow Hands

 

Caribou

Pure Bliss | Caribou – ‘Our Love’

Sublime electronic bliss.

Those are the words I’d use to describe Canadian producer Caribou aka Dan Snaith’s infectious new single, “Our Love.”

When you first push play, atmospheric vocals and slow-burn beats begin to entice you. This sultry combination creates a “late-night ride” vibe, but don’t be mistaken by the subtle BPM.

This track reaches its full potential and powers up with some wicked electro synths, kicks, snares, and everything that makes this track somehow eargasmic. 

Perhaps, I might not be making sense. So why not just push play and experience it for yourself?
